  1. Like everyone has expressed, my biggest worry is not getting the full story. Adapting 14 books is a monumental task. Biggest concern: they try to squeeze in as much as they can, fearing it won't go more than 3-5 seasons, and you get a watered down mess that barely resembles the story we know.
  2. Man I feel you about that insult of a show Shannara. Big fan of the books, one of the original epic fantasy series for me (along with Dragonlance) that got me hooked on the genre. It was almost as if the creators never even read the books. Watched the first episode and never went back.
